Korycheer, I'm with you. I have found all 20 beach balls in the Free Ride, but I could never get all 20 within the 30 minutes allowed. I have not found a way to increase that time, nor have I found a level beyond the Free Ride.

For those who are frustrated trying to find the 20 beach balls, know that a couple of them are on ledges where you would never go because they don't lead to anything and it is easy to fall off. The one I had the hardest time finding is next to the big red bridge.

took me forever to find the 20 flags! A great feeling of accomplishment when I did though! The free ride balls--forget about it! I spend the time pushing myself in distance. So far my record is 10.6 miles in the 30 minutes. I was hauling! LOVE the cycling!

Hi Linda,
The Mii picture was made from a Mii generator I found on the internet.
here is a link so you can make your own...
www.miisearch.com/mii-creator.html?v
ie
w=miicreator


Regarding your other question...are you talking about my exercise page on my blog and the minutes that I have been logging?....

that's just something I do by hand every saturday. Each day that I exercise, I log, with pen and paper, how many steps or miles or spins etc that I did, then at the end of the week I go on my blog and add them to my totals. I have one of those little pocket planners that I use.
The 'walk it out' game is a little less work because it keeps track of everything you do each day as well as an overall total since day 1...so even though I still use my good ol' pen and paper (it's a habit), I do go into my settings at the end of the month to look at those overall totals and compare them to my own counts and adjust them if nessesary (so far though my math has been spot on and I haven't had to adjust my blog page totals, hehe)

I would love to hook up my Wii to the computer but I have limited bandwidth each month. We have 'Wild Blue' satelite broadband and we have restrictions on how much we can download or upload during a 30 day period. I'm already at like 70% usage between just me and my son and we have their highest plan...if we go over, which I did all the time with their lower prices packages, they would cut back our speeds and I swear our connections slowed down worse than dial up and remain that way until our bandwidth dropped below a certain percentage.....but it's our only option for internet connection (and an expensive one at that), living out here in the boonies.

I have a hard time getting those dang balls on the advanced Segway! Though today the little dog got a lot of them for me! But I still haven't gotten them all. And Island cycling for some reason took me over 30 minutes and 7 miles to get the 22 flags! Needless to say, I was tired...

Lisa, how do you get those pictures of your Mii and minutes from your Wii Fit onto the computer? Are you hooked together with your internet?

On island cycling, all the course UP TO the expert course you will be looking for flags. The the next course which is called 'free ride', there are NO flags, but you will come across beachballs. Once you find the first one it will tell you that there are twenty of them all over the island, and you will have 30 minutes to find them all....
after that course, I not sure what comes next, lol...I'm still trying to find the beachballs.

OK--I'm confused. Some people talk about flags and some beach balls. I can only find the Island Cycling with the flags. What other cycling game is there and is it on the Wii Fit Plus or another game? Thanks in advance.

And, I am always falling off the cliffs!


I WILL look to smaller goals to accomplish the final goal!

Zebramom1 - hard to say whats good. One person's good and another are very different. That said - I will do Island Cycle (not my favorite) and 10 minute Hula tonight or tomorrow morning and post my scores. I will open up a new topic - UNLESS someone does them first and wants to start one???

I did Island Cycling for the first time today. Got all 13 flags and did about 2.5 miles in 8 minutes. Is this good?

Guess I have to go a few more times to get to the advanced level.

A hint to those trying the Advanced Segway. This time you have to chase the mole twice. The first time I got him, I wondered why he didn't blow up. Then I realized that his parachute changed color, so you have to get him twice.

Gosh, my mojo just took another flying leap!

ROTFL! It is so good to hear everyone working hard to find flags! My first time I got so lost and fell off cliffs a lot just trying to get the game to end! Now I have found 21 of the 22 flags but had to give up. Guess I'm going back in too! I've been scared to go advance level with the Segway! But curiosity is going to get me now!

Still can't find all 20 balls on the free ride yet. What stinks is that there's no guide so you're riding blind. Did it three times yesterday and still can't find them all. GRRRRRR. I did burn almost 300 calories trying though!

MROSE721,
YUP, that's how they get you HOOKED! lol
Those 13 flags were fairly easy to find...and you think you got this game in the bag, until.........
ADVANCED course.
And it doesn't get any easier, rofl.

But if you think about it, if it were easy, we wouldn't all be sitting here having this much fun, hehe (and losing weight)

WTG on finding all those flags. Today, after I did my c25k run, I did a little cycling on the island too. But since I had a "real" run outside, I went for the Island cycling. But I got my best score yet. So it was a great day by all.

Island cycling "free ride"...holy smokes. Is it even possible to find all the beach balls in 30 minutes? rofl

This one may take even longer to complete than the expert course. I did notice the cruise ship though on this one....very cool. I'm sure there is alot more stuff...but it took me almost 30 minutes just to bike my way across my "now very much bigger" beach, haha.

I noticed if you follow one of the cats on the Island Run it will show you a way to get to the top of the mountain.

I also did not know there was a time limit. Mine keeps telling me to step on the rectangles--GRRR


I WILL look to smaller goals to accomplish the final goal!

XOLISAOX you are such an inspiration. As well as all of you who have done Island Cycle. I have done the beginner one once. I have about 30 hours on my Wii - mostly fun and games. (FYI - I tried to post this earlier but my computer/phone went out and I don't think it went thru. If it shows up twice - sorry.)

Does everyone know about the dog helping you in both Island Cycling and Segway? If you point on a target (checkpoint flag or beach ball) when the dog is with you, he will fetch the target for you. You have to be pretty close to the target for it to work. Give it a try if you haven't done so already.

So glad to hear other people go crazy and bonkers with some of the challenges on the games! I get lost on that island sometimes! emoticon I have the option to go "expert" but haven't had the courage yet... maybe one Saturday AM when I have LOTS of time!
And about the piggy bank color, it's so exciting, huh? I think I have like 44 hours on mine, I have a gold piggy bank. Don't know if it'll change again... I've only had my wii fit plus since Christmas, I'm still learning.

Just thought about a hint I can share. When you try the other levels, look for the barricades that close off an area. Then when you try the expert level and the barricades are gone, you know you have to go there to find a flag. Up the hill, over the small bridge to the right of start there is a cave area with a flag. Through the tunnel at the far left from start there is an area off to the left with ruins and a flag is up in the ruins. These are just two examples of areas that are barricaded in other levels of Island Cycling.

I have found all of the flags. I can't possibly get all 20 beach balls in the free ride within the alloted 30 minutes.
I'll try the expert level again and see if I can post some of the flags that are harder to find. Haven't done that one in a while.
I wonder if anyone has found a second way up or down from the top of the mountain in the expert level. I have only found one way and I think there should be another so that you don't have to backtrack.

TIMES UP????

61 mins of play time and my game just told me my "times up"... and shut me down from any more cycling???
Now I'm ticked off...lol. I got to go back and find not only these last 3 flags, but gather up the other 17 flags AGAIN and do it before 61 mins...

I didn't know there was a time limit...ohh it's on now.
I can see this taking me ALL day, lmao.
gonna go have me a snack, then get right back on and try again. (and again, and again if need be)

58 minutes so far (I'm take a few min break) and I am stuck at 17 flags.
WTH are these flags.
Ok, look, I'm inside the middle of the volcano (I think that's what it is) and I got the one flag (ya know the one) and when you look on the map...there is another flag right above this on some kind of path...it's like RIGHT THERE...but I can't find the path!
ohhhh nooo...I'm gonna find these 3 flags (I think i left one right at the start...so it's these 2 ones at the very top that I need the most.
I seen a castle...where did this come from??? How to do you get this thing?
don't tell me...grrrrrr
Be back in another hour if I can't find them yet...lol

I haven't tried cycling yet. Being on a "regular" bike is hard enough for me. My "I WILL bet this" thing is the stupid obstacle course.

I have made a decision that's either gonna make me keel over...or make me a stronger person, lmao.

Today was my "walk it out" and strength training day...but that's changed.
I am going to get on my island "tricked out" bike and go around the EXPERT course on 'Bahama Mama' Island for as long as it take me to find all of those flags.
I ain't stopping until I find them ALL (or my legs give up on me, lol)
I've been trying for 3 weeks to find all 20 flags...and all I have found is 18. I can see the flags right up on top of the mountain/on the map but can't get to them.
Frustration got the upper hand and I haven't played Island cycling in 11 days because I gave up thinking I was ever going to find them.

But I want to go to the next level already! :(

Wish me luck guys (I've notified 911 and they are on full alert)
Today's the day....Island Cycling Is NOT going To Beat me today!
